    I was so ugly that my parents sent my picture to 'ripley's believe it or not' - they sent it back and said, "we don't believe it." — Joan Rivers

    Quoted from Coindork:

    An even better mod is to replace the stationary targets with drop targets.
    The game is coded that way and they were taken out when the game went into production. Here’s a picture of mine.
    It’s a real game changer for this title. [quoted image]

    I was not aware of that... I remember playing this game on location and always thought those should have been DTs... interesting that they made that last minute decision...do you know why?

    $1700 Stellar Wars seems somewhat reasonable... was it not working? I missed it

    not work, and neither was phoenix

    5 grand for a mr & mrs pacman? good lord.

    If I recall, it still wasn't working. It had some weird problems.

    #3756 32 days ago

    Wanted to get Starlight, but my max bid of $4500 seems adorable in retrospect.

    I swear they were actually playing Phoenix but I musta been distracted by the clearcoated playfield and Dave talking about the developers lol

    Quoted from NicoVolta:

    OK everyone a big round of applause to our California purveyor of pinball clubs, CaryCarmichael who attained the Freedom Prototype. *woo woo*
    Hey Cary... this means it'll be available for play for the peoples, yes?

    I think that's the one that had some pork chop bones in the bottom of the cabinet.

    He's doing a good job at that. Evident in Star light for 10k.

    Who is he exactly? Is he involved with the museum? I hope Captain is cutting him a nice check after this

    Cyclone for $8,700. I've seen it all.

    Coaster pins are hot! I'm RICH!!!!!!!

    Jolly Park coming soon, should be interesting.

    We could never get Jolly park playing. We had a 220v to 120v convertor for it, but everything was in a different language and we could not get it out of the menu.

    #3763 32 days ago

    Wasn’t last asking price for Primus $9300. I guess this didn’t seem too terrible… sold hammer $8100

    #3764 32 days ago

    Some pin trivia: one of the more notorious songs by Primus had a salacious sounding title that almost (?) provoked a lawsuit, did provoke an insulting counter-video, but the claim was made that the title actually referred to something other than what people assumed it referred to.

    Yeah, the Spanish stuff is tough for me also, the manual is very detailed though. I just upgraded my transformer to a grounded one. Apparently the old non-grounded one should not be used on a bare concrete floor. Didn't know that until I felt some serious voltage coming off the legs.

    $10,100 Sopranos

    I'm not fluent in binary, how much was it?

    #3769 32 days ago

    $10,100 for Sopranos... Must be the deluxe edition with Jimmy Hoffa's body inside.

    #3770 32 days ago

    Someone did a Google search on the wrong Indiana Jones. $9600 hammer for the stern!!!

    $20 in binary

    Actually Verne turns on, language issue again. We only had 1 invertor for 2 machines.

    Thought Verne's would go higher than Jolly Park, guess the lack of power kept the price down.

    Hey Cary... this means it'll be available for play for the peoples, yes?

    I’m really regretting not bidding one last time at $3400. These just don’t come up for sale. I figured whoever got it was not one of the same guys who won the Cyclone or Data East Batman. Can you ask Cary if he would have countered at $3500? How high was he willing to go?

    #3776 32 days ago

    Dear future Midway Gun Fight owner, you may want to replace this as it's shorted. Game still works.

    Well that's more Zaccaria than I've ever seen in one place. Sorry it's going to the four winds before we could make it out to California again.

    They were certainly different, they were interesting.

    I believe there has been a Jolly Park, a Verne's World, (and one called Budo, as in martial arts) in the Pinball Land collection (in Santa Ana, CA.), though they were probably rotated in, rather than being part of the standing group. This is a private location that opens sporadically, but you can get on their mailing list to be notified as to when they are open. They also relocated to a new location, awhile back.

    #3779 32 days ago

    Good to see both Devil Riders working .... last time there only could get one working (was using the spare for parts to get the other one working)

    At the last show we 'teched' at, my son had Verne's working (to some extent at least) ... it is a great game and thought it would have gone for a lot more than that too....

    #3781 32 days ago

    I just wanted to say U-Boat 65 in this thread so it would be mentioned in searches.

    Also worth mentioning is there's probably no possible way you'll get this one running again so happy $2700 spent!

    It looks like it was made with Premier/Gottlieb parts.

    #3783 32 days ago

    And for anyone heading by that way who may have been curious, there was an Attila the Hun at the Seattle Pinball Museum -- assuming that they are still up and running.

    Out of curiosity, why do you say that?
    I know someone who ones one of these that works.
    Is is missing some kind of game specific parts or something?

    #3787 32 days ago

    I bet lot 1014 Safe Cracker Pinball Machine hits 20K

    Calling all MOP techs:
    Pin condition comments re Lots # 1024 through #1045 ? Any serious red flags that we should know about ?
    (Not that the likely prices are going to be worth a bid anyway, but just in case . . . . )

    #3791 32 days ago

    Definitely another entertaining day today ... worth getting up early here in Australia to watch

    now , 12 hours to go on auction..

    That's actually correct. Impressive

    Higher hammer on Oktoberfest than NIB price. Stunning.

    #3795 32 days ago

    I think so. Ron and Angi -- great people. Probably also have some presence on FB ?
    There won't be any other venue of the same name in SoCal.

    #3796 32 days ago

    Yeah, couldn't find AP's pricing on their website. Definitly over NIB after fees.

    #3797 32 days ago

    OKF 8,200 plus fees = a few thousand higher than what we can sell new in box... lol I'd love to meet the knuckleheads bidding on this stuff...

    Yeah I thought it would go higher too.
    Vernes was also playable, I never had Jolly Park working. If I remember correctly I think there was just a bit of messing around in the menu system, which is all in Italian or Spanish, to credit it up.

    I remember NGG having an issue with it spitting multiple balls out when it would start a game when I was there at the last event. Spent a lot of time playing that machine before it developed that issue.

    I seem to recall Funhouse had a split cabinet corner the last show I worked there.
